Green infrastructure has the ability to soak up rain and heat (with vegetation) but how do we know if it’s soaking up success?

Beginning with the Water Augmentation Study and later Elmer Avenue, Council for Watershed Health has built a reputation for leveraging green infrastructure to slow, spread and sink (or soak up) stormwater where it falls, producing as many benefits as possible, and creating a sustainable landscape ethic in Southern California. CWH has since gathered lessons learned, best practices, and  strategies to help inform future project design, implementation, and monitoring strategies.

Today, significant investments in Green Infrastructure projects (GI) are being made throughout California, and with the recent passage of LA County’s Safe, Clean Water Program, CWH and partners recognize the need for common strategies to measure success.

With our Rain or Shine – Soaking up Success Symposium, CWH will provide a forum to:

>> Examine GI from the areas of urban ecology, water resources, social benefits, and governance

>> Explore how to better quantify the multiple benefits of GI

>> Share lessons learned, best practices, and strategies to help inform future design, implementation, and monitoring

We invite you to join us on October 3rd, along with agencies, municipalities, academia, and practitioners, in soaking up and defining project success from a science-based, ecological, equity-driven, and watershed perspective.
